RIVIÈRE-DU-LOUP, QC, May 29, 2012 /PR Newswire/ -- Premier Tech is pleased to announce its Business Unit Premier Tech Aqua (PTA), from the Environmental Technologies Group, has received, last May 24, a Phénix de l'environnement, the highest environmental distinction awarded in Québec. PTA came out as the winner in the Process, Product or Ecoresponsible Packaging category thanks to the marketing of its ready-to-use polyethylene Ecoflo. The 15th edition of the Phénix de l'environnement was held at the National Assembly in the presence of Mr. Pierre Arcand, Minister of Sustainable Development, Environment and Parks.
The prize is a recompense for the environmental commitment which has guided PTA's actions for the past 20 years. The new product is fully preassembled when delivered, and is made from materials that can be recycled, reclaimed or composted. PTA once more stands out, this time, by being the only company to offer North American consumers a wastewater treatment solution that is 100% ecofriendly.
'This honour from the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment and Parks crowns the collaboration between our research and development teams from Québec and France. It also proves that innovation and research have become a source of job creation and wealth for the companies of Québec. Promising careers now lie in the development of sustainable products as well as in research and environment-related fields,' explained Roger Lacasse, Vice-President Research and Development at Premier Tech Aqua.
